I am concerned about your practice of discrimination. I understand that you discriminate against kleptomaniacs in your hiring practices, and that you discriminate against those with criminal records as well. I am appalled that you are now discriminating against others who discriminate. The Boy Scouts discriminate against using sodomites and pedophiles as troop leaders. You kick them out of your facility because they discriminate. Hypocrite. You owe restitution to the Boy Scouts of America. I will promote your boycott until this restitution is publicly announced with your apology.
We also discriminate against using sodomites and pedophiles with our children ministries. I reckon that puts us on your little list of "hate groups" you put the Boy Scouts on. As a bank you had better wake up and recognize that discrimination against the morally depraved is wise, necessary, and still legal in this State. HSBC does it in their hiring practices; you will not hire a kleptomaniac to operate your teller booths or safe. Yet you would force a group to put a sodomite in charge of a group of boys, when he openly and plainly wants to get a peek at their genitals and/or have sex with them. You promote discrimination against the Boy Scouts because they have good moral judgment. Don't be a two faced amoral hypocrite, publicly apologize for your ignorant utterances and actions against the Boy Scouts and make restitution for your incompetence.
My ability to Pastor a Baptist Church according to the dictates of the Holy Bible is in jeopardy in NY State because of your ignorant acts of intolerance. We make moral discriminations about who touches our children. Don't be jerks, Boy Scouts must do the same, and we must each do it without being called hate groups.
I am sending notice of your public Boy Scout damning to every Baptist Pastor I know, asking them to boycott HSBC and reprimand the incompetent Auburn Mayor and her staff. HSBC will be named next Sunday morning as the ones who called those of us who practice moral discrimination "hate groups" and yet they practice hate and discrimination against the Boy Scouts of America.
